An Afternoon With the Little Yellow Airplane

This is our little yellow airplane.
She's a 1946 Piper Cub
(and I can't help calling her Stella).
That guy standing next to her is her pilot.
His name's Mike.

He has four kids that have been waiting for days for the weather to be clear enough to go flying.
They drew straws to see who'd be first, and Isaak was the lucky one.
(Mike IS sitting in the pilot's seat. Really!
You sit in the back to fly a J-3 Cub.)
Jaela got to go next,
Anya went third,
and although Macey had to wait until all of her siblings were done, she got to ride along (after her turn) while the pilot did a few extra landings and take-offs.
Who's next?!?
